Sony’s adding Google Assistant to lots of its older headphones

by John_A

Five headphones in total are getting some Assitant love.

To no one’s surprise, CES 2018 has been home to announcement after announcement of new speakers, headphones, TVs, and more that ship with Google Assistant built-in. This new tech is great, but if you own Sony headphones that have already been released, you’ll get a taste of this Assistant action, too.

First reported by the folks at Android Police, Sony will be releasing software updates to multiple existing headphones to add Google Assistant functionality. You’ll need to have your headphones connected to your phone in order for the update to download and install, and models that will receive this treatment include:

  • WF-1000X
  • WI-1000X
  • WH-1000XM2
  • WH-CH900N
  • H.ear on 2 WH-H900N

Sony hasn’t announced exactly when these software updates to add the Assistant will be pushed out, but even so, it’s still great to see a company adding new features to “old” tech.
